Another week. This time we click over the calendar to a new year and a new decade. Twenty years now since the y2k “scare;” since we partied like it’s 1999.
This week’s photos feature some scans from a roll of Ilford HP5 400 shot at Fisherman’s Terminal. One from Chicago and one from an Uber ride return. Such a diverse set shows my rich and varied life. I am lucky.
Kodak Ektar 100 and a late fall morning. That’s a good combination. Loaded in a Rollei 35 S and getting the zone focus right makes it an amazing combination.
Fremont is a Seattle neighborhood with a history of art and quirkiness. Recent years upscale clothing designer Cutter & Buck made its home there. Now Google has taken over several buildings and the funkiness now has a geeky feel.
It’s a great place to walk. Outdoor sculptures, bridges, water and trees make great subjects.
Back from Moonphoto comes this weeks scans: Ilford Delta 400 shot with the Rollei 35 S.
The first three shots are architectural. Two from Ballard, including the first one of the award winning Ballard Library, and the third a building on the campus of Northwest Hospital.
Other writers have gushed about this film. I won’t go that far. My favorite black and white film is probably the Fomopan 100. But I may have been misusing this film. With the high, bright overcast sky, my pictures seem washed out a bit. I’d like to see more inky blacks; more charcoal.
But the following are acceptable to me. Especially the second and third.
